    I never thought I’d see such a complete eco-system in my living room. My Mollies and Pleco’s are growing Peas, Tomatoes and Microgreens! They were the “Guinea Pigs” for the system, and they love the bell siphon dumps and the bubbles it makes. My real guinea pigs eat some of the produce. Worms and hermit crabs love the grow bed, bacteria are thriving and my kids are an invasive species. Healthy plants need healthy fish poop, so very cool to find a local forum like this for the fish in my life. Anyone else into this I wonder?

    What do you use for lighting? Your sidebar has no location. Are you in the Vancouver area?

    I’m using a 300Watt LED grow light (viparspectra) in a 2x2 grow tent above my aquarium, and another vertical one for a grow tower beside it (was aiming for Aeroponics, but fish water doesn’t mist well)..
